Hervé Hucteau, the investigating commissioner to conduct the public inquiry into the implementation of a photovoltaic power plant (14 hectares panels at a place called The Lugeat in Fléac) delivered its opinion: it is unfavorable to the project this site where Cosea filed inert landfills during the construction of the LGV.
Hervé Hucteau reviewed the file, read the notes and letters sent by local residents or the Charente Nature Association, received replies of the project proponent, the company Urbasolar, the questions in the survey.
Conclusion: “the development of photovoltaics should not be on agricultural land […] involved in the preservation of biodiversity” .
Or Lugeat the project would settle on 14 hectares of land for several decades, “which 6 hectares to agricultural unquestionable character and 8 hectares including the loss of agricultural character seems abnormal vis-à-vis commitments Cosea” still argues Hervé Hucteau.
Moreover, according to the investigating commissioner, “the location decision of a photovoltaic plant would be contrary to the guidance document and the Scot objective of Angoumois, on the application of the principle of balance of space between development and preservation of natural, agricultural and forestry “ .
If the opinion of a board of inquiry is not the final decision of the prefect, it is mostly considered in the order final.
